While in Utah, we had a photo shoot with Uncle Ryan. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how these turned out. So cute!
This blog shares the happenings of Chris, Lacey and Reese O'Donnell. We didn't used to have that much to say about ourselves which is why posts were few and far between, but now we have a little person that will give us a lot to talk about. The blog will also feature Lacey's Random Finds - event planning, paper love, pretty crafty things, etc.
Reese loved meeting Santa (mostly!). She learned to tell us what Santa says, and the whole time we were in line, she could see him and was saying HO HO HO over and over again. And of course waving and saying HI - her favorite new thing.
In other news, while we were waiting for Chris to meet us at the mall, we were shopping around and it started to SNOW. INSIDE. Yep, snow machine in the mall. It was awesome. Only at Tysons II.
During December, one of Lacey's big events took place right here in DC. The organization she works for throws a really nice holiday/winter party. The last few years it has been held at a local hotel, but this year we went all out with the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. It was fantastic. Guests could roam the exhibits (like first ladies dresses, or the ruby slippers) while enjoying great food and drink (and dancing of course!). The colors this year were shades of red and turquoise. It all turned out beautiful with the lights, linens, and centerpieces. AND...we got a really nice picture taken by the event photographer.
In December we had our picture taken with some of our Mom's group friends and babies. It was hilarious and we are thrilled that we got one or two where they are looking at the camera.
